Sibford School celebrated the success of its GCSE and A Level students with a special awards night held at the Mill Theatre in Banbury on Thursday (September 12).

Guest speaker was scientist, writer, broadcaster and member of the House of Lords, Susan Greenfield.

Susan, who is Professor of Pharmacology at Oxford University, told students: “Each one of you is a unique and special person … and that uniqueness is down to your brain.

“There never has been and never will be a brain the same as yours. The environment you are in is so important to the development of the brain, which is why this school has been such an excellent place for you to be. However, now is the time to start taking your life into your hands and to be you. Don’t be frightened to be you.”

Michael Goodwin, head of Sibford School said: “Our celebration evening was a lovely event and we are grateful to Susan Greenfield for agreeing to be our guest speaker.”
